Williams — 2 nights

A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Williams lies on one of the first highways ever built in America, the iconic "Route 66." The town boasts many inns, motels, restaurants, and shops, although its most important feature is serving as the southern terminus of a scenic railway leading to the area's most famous tourist attraction, the World Heritage-listed Grand Canyon.
On the 9th (Fri), play a few rounds at Elephant Rocks at Williams, take an in-depth tour of Ash Fork Historical Society Museum, then see the interesting displays at Return to the 50s, and finally don't miss a visit to Wild West Junction. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Joseph Catholic Church, walk around Bill Williams Monument Park, explore the stunning scenery at Sycamore Canyon, then look for gifts at Thunder Eagle Native Art, and finally do a tasting at Grand Canyon Wine Company.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Williams trip planning site.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Williams. Expect a daytime high around 74°F in September, and nighttime lows around 47°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Flagstaff.
